Having been a frequent traveller to Marmaris and stayed in a variety of hotels 3star through to 5 star I have to say. this was the best hotel overall. The rooms are basic and quite small (unless it's a family room,) however we were made to feel very special. We travelled in a party of 6 adults and 1 teenager . The pool was fantastic and the food second to none. Too often in the 5 star all inclusive hotels everything is geared around meal times and dressing for dinner. It was a pleasure to fully relax and if we did not feel like getting dressed up at night to eat there was no pressure to do so. This was the most chilled out and relaxed any of us had been on our holidays to Marmaris for many a year. Batman (Fraid) and all the waiters work so hard and nothing is too much effort, their dance shows are brill. Weekly BBQ is a must worth ever penny of the £10 PP exellent quality no shortage in quantity and their folkdancers, fire show and belly dancer really makes the night.. The hotel is situated near the mountain road into Marmaris (Armutalan) but there is a bas terminus 2 min walk from te hotel door from which you can get a dolmus to town centre and beach for the cheap price of 1 lira 75 (approx 60p)
Boat trip is definately worth doing (great for the tan) as is the turkish bath and jeep safari.
There are a number of us rebooking for this hotel for May2012 would not go past it now. Take the time to talk to the staff they can let you know all about their culture and love to practice their English, it is appreciated if you make attempts to learn even a few words of Turkish.. Thank You Mehmet, Fraid, Alex and james to name but a few Who wants the big fancy hotels where you are just a room number much prefer to chill out with you guys and feel like we are amongst friends
See you all in MAY xxxxxxxxx Tracy and Stuart Grubb
